Latin Love

Amare,
have a feeling superior over all others.
Dare,
let your heart tell you where to go.
Habitare,
experience more than the body can take.
Incitare,
have that burning fire within your soul.
Laudare,
understand the feeling of being loved.
Monstrare,
be there for the other no matter the reason.
Mandare,
promise the mind there will be a reward.
Manere,
make sure love's there through the season.
Sparare,
watch a sunset and feel unique.
Tenere,
feel the warmth of a hand in yours.

I really love this :) Who ever said Latin is dead hasn't seen it live on in our words. The language and this poem are both beautiful

Wow. This is amazing and I'm really glad that you took this risk for words. Not many people wouldn't try that.
